The paper describes the approach to English grammar developed in Lapaire (2005). I have devised a number of teaching tools, including NarraGrams (fables, poems, stories that help conceptualize grammatical mechanisms), LogoGrams (metaphoric catch phrases that encapsulate the meaning and / or use of a construction) and KineGrams (short choreographed gesture performances, now recorded on DVD). The approach includes a DVD (Grammar in Motion) in which 50 grams and some 20 metalinguistic terms are explained, using gesture. (Jean-Rémi Lapaire)
